Gary Catalano was one of Australia's leading art critics and
writers. After his death in 2002, the Art Gallery of Ballarat was
given his personal collection of art which he had built up over 30
years from exhibitions he visited and by artists he knew.
This exhibition presenting his gifted collection provides a
fascinating insight into connoisseurship by revealing the
intellectual and emotional preoccupations of one highly intelligent
and perceptive man. It includes works by Rick Amor, Peter Booth,
Paul Boston, David Keeling, Lynne Boyd, Elizabeth Gower, Mirka Mora
and Rosie Weiss.
